Nirvana, a concept in several Oriental religions, is the state of detachment from all pain and concerns, which translates ultimately to turning off the capacity to interact with the wound-giving world. “Anxious for nothing” doesn’t mean Nirvana. Christ’s followers are called to be engaged with stark daily reality, not withdraw. Rather, to be “anxious for nothing” means that we are not to worry constantly or keep turning concerns over in our minds. As we live in the fury of the world, turning over our fears and scars to God, His peace guards us.
